Visqueen Damp Proof Course

Visqueen also offers a damp proof course alongside its membrane for further resilience. It is essential to mention that DPC and DPM are different. While a DPM acts like a barrier for concrete floors, a DPC will prevent moisture from rising within walls.

Both products can support each other and work harmoniously to prevent the rise of damp. Additionally, the Visqueen damp proof course is manufactured to good standards for cost-effectiveness and longevity.
